it is probably more than a coincidence. The medication you are taking for asthma is a very active medication and can have a very stimulating effect which can show itself in many different ways in many different ways.
That was a long time to be sick (minor in comparison to mental health issues for most though, still not very nice).
If there are no other precipitating factors then it is possible through process of elimination to suggest that the ventolin is the cause.
I expect the ventolin would give you some physiological response, not sure if they, or the side-effects, are being misinterpreted as manic symptoms. You will know your body best though.
It could be a drug reaction or even just because you're feeling more vulnerable at this time due to the flu, chest infection and now breathing difficulties.
I have absolutely no idea when it comes to medication so you'll have to wait for the doctors response. You may also like to schedule an appointment to see you psychiatrist. ??
I have had probs with breathing since having swine flu in august as had a chest infection for twelve weeks.
thanks for reply
I don't know. It sounds like it could be from the ventolin.
The propranolol could be causing the difficulty in breathing (requiring the ventolin).
I use bricanyl to manage my asthma and find that it increases my anxiety.
This is something you should discuss with your doctor.
i have the exact same response! when i have Ventolin i usually have a strange "high" feeling followed by panic attacks or ongoing anxiety... my GP said it was just coincidence but i swear its something more!
